Premier Bracket is Double Elimination - Players will need to be active and schedule their matches quickly.
Open Bracket is Single Elimination.
Bracket seeding is determined by rank number. A snapshot of rank will be taken on August 23rd. Expect exact details on how to communicate ELO via discord and with TO’s TBA.
The Blaston Premiere Bracket will consist of the top 64 players with the highest rank number who register for the tournament. For clarity, priority will be given to higher rank for building the official tournament bracket and seeding and only from those who have registered.
All matches until the round of 8 are best of 3. For example, this means that the round of 32 would be best of 3.
The Blaston Open Bracket will accommodate players of all skill levels and no bracket size ceiling. A bracket ceiling may be put in place depending on total registrations.
If you qualify for the premier bracket, you can’t play in the open bracket. TO’s will take and combine registrations from registrants to build final brackets. TO’s will sort out the entrants after all the signups have been closed.
Player will be able to contact and schedule their matches in the tournament in the Challengermode chat
We encourage using additional methods such as Facebook contact your opponent, but only Challengermode messages will count and be official in case of disputes where the opponent does not show up. The opponent not showing up will result in a forfeit. VAL reserves the right to decide the forfeiting party.
Players may schedule their brackets through to the final 8. Once to the final 8 VAL will coordinate the final 8 of each bracket to schedule the final matches. Players will need to be prepared to sync at the best times with all other players as this is synchronous.
The finals will have different recording and other spectating rules TBD. In general, players should expect to have their matches broadcast and casted over.
Players in the EU may play players in the APAC region for instance. VAL will make reasonable efforts to match players by region, but this is not guaranteed. No region locks.
All tournament matches will be best-of-3 games, until winners, losers, and final 8 which will all be best-of-5 games.
Global tournaments are open to anyone. Region locked tournaments are made solely for players who are playing in the boundaries of whichever continent/country the tournament has specified. If the tournament is region locked, any player found to be playing from a region outside of the region(s) allowed, can be disqualified from the tournament and banned from subsequent installations unless they relocate to that region.
Lag Dispute Procedure
This tournament also does its best to prevent lag in an online environment. To do so, there is a lag dispute procedure each player must follow in case they wish to dispute their opponent on the basis of game-altering lag.
You will be immediately disqualified from the tournament if you are found hiding your identity to manipulate the bracket/seeding. The only exception to this rule is if the player notifies a TO prior to the registration end date.
Anyone who is not present for their match by 15 minutes past the scheduled start time is subject to a total disqualification from their match. Efforts to contact opponents are highly encourage in challengermode, official records to contact will be in the #blaston channel on the VAL discord to prove tardiness.
Players suspected of colluding may be immediately disqualified from the tournament. This includes intentionally throwing a game or committing any other form of bracket manipulation.
In the event that a connection with another player is lost and an interference occurs, a TO should be called to determine how to advance. If a resolution cannot be reached in a reasonable amount of time, the player who disconnected from the match is subject to forfeiting the round, game, or match at the TO’s discretion.
If any unforeseen situations occur, judgment of Tournament Staff is final. Rules may be altered between phases of a tournament in the best interests of the event. (Example: A game breaking glitch that gives benefits to one player is discovered during a tournament. Thus, the stage may need to be removed from legal play for the remainder of the event.)
No offensive or sexual gestures are to take place before, during, in-between or after matches by players. This is according to the Blaston Code of Conduct, and offenses will lead to immediate disqualification and can lead to bans depending on the severity of the breach of the CoC.
Players are encouraged to show sportsmanship before, during, in-between and matches. However, this does not mean players are required to engage in social gestures such as high fives, and fistbumps. If a high five or fist bump is offered but not received, it is not considered a breach of rules.
Furniture Usage or ‘Boosting’
Players are not allowed to use any type of platform, furniture or equipment to raise themselves from the in-game platform in an unnatural way. This is to maintain competitive integrity, but also to prevent players from sustaining injuries to themselves when playing Blaston.
Players are not allowed to recenter themselves excessively during active rounds.
Spectating matches by other players is allowed as long as both players allow it. Spectators are allowed to clap while spectating. Matches will not be replayed if a spectator is disturbing the match with clapping. Any match can be spectated by a TO, to make sure that players are following the rules.
No player is forced to use Voice Chat before, during, in-between or after matches. If a player asks the opponent to use voice chat but it is rejected - it shouldn’t be questioned.
Round: One in-game round that has a 2 minute time limit.
Game: One set of best of 3 Rounds.
Match: One set of best of 3 or 5 Games.
Tournament Organizer (TO): An administrator organizing the tournament.
